Deedee's Digis

I absolutely love this little pup by Deedee's Digis so it was easy for me to CASE a card I had made earlier with the same image.  Kathy D had suggested that I add the graduation cap to my card.  My nephew will graduate from Iowa State in December so I decided to use school colors for the background.  He wants to get a puppy as soon as he has a "real" job and his own place which is the start of my inspiration.  I have had lots of fun as a guest this month.  Thanks to all, especially Zella, Guest Designer Coordinator.

Deedee's Digis Diver Daniel & OWH Sketch #253

This card was super fun to make.  A Darice embossing folder to create the background; I embossed the paper twice to add a little depth. Both images were used pre-colored but I did recolor the sentiment to a matching blue.  I used OWH Sketch #253 to create the card.  I will definitely miss getting new sketches to use each month when they close August 1st.  Some sequins were added to replace the bubbles I lost when I fussy cut the image.

Deedee's Digis: Blooming Blessings

This card is being featured over at Deedee's Digis.  It is a CASE of one that I had made earlier, but this time I colored it using some Copics.  The Ball jar image can be found here.  I just love how one can mock emboss using a white Signo really softens up the image.  The papers out of my giant scrap pile.

OWH Sketch #256 & 2 Cute Ink

Hello! This week's sketch by OWH seemed a perfect fit for this sweet image by 2 Cute Ink.  Heidi has a monthly freebie that is available by signing up.  Papers used were dug out of the scrap pile.  The tickets were another digi that I had saved a couple of years back.  Thanks for stopping by!

DeeDee's Digis

Hello there...  Just a quick post to share a few details about today's card.  I printed the wreath out twice on kraft and fussy cut one out.  I used the second one to cut out the rounded leaves to pop them up a wee bit.  Edges were all inked and Glossy Accents was added to the berries.  Another easy card once the cutting is complete and I just love the font on the sentiment!

Word's 2 Scrap By: It's a Mans World

Here is my card that is featured on the current challenge at Words 2 Scrap By: It's a Man's World.  It is a CASE of a card I had made previously.  The mechanic is a Birdie Brown digi that is no longer available.  The retro background is an older image that I found through Free Digital Stamps.  I love how the colored image really pops when next to it.

Deedee's Digis: Guest Designer

I am playing catch-up on my posting.  Lucky me to be asked to be a guest by Deedee's Digis for this month.  This card features a verse from Endless Beginnings and a frame is from Blooming Blessings.  I printed both out as one image and then did a little fussycutting.  White faux stitching and Liquid Pearls were added as the final touches.  Super easy card.
I have decided to start donating some of the cards I make to a group of retired nuns for their personal use.  So many of Deedee's Digis will work perfectly for this venture.  My sister takes care of their hair needs which is how I got the idea.

OWH Sketch #255

It has been quite awhile since I posted, since my life has been super busy.  Even longer since I played with an OWH challenge.  I tweaked sketch #255 a bit to work for the card.  Stamps used were Stamping Up, Hero Arts, and Close to My Heart; papers by Doodle Bug.  Pretty easy peasy!
